miniOrange SSO solution allows you to login to any of your applications/websites using SimpleSAML as IdP (Identity Provider). In this guide we will go through step-by-step instructions on how to configure SSO between an application and SimpleSAML by configuring SimpleSAML as an Identity Provider and your application as a Service Provider. miniOrange SSO solution also acts as an identity broker for cross protocol authentication, which means Service Provider following a particular SSO protocol can connect to an Identity Provider following some different SSO protocol like SAML,OAuth etc. Once configured successfully you will be ready to securely access your website/application using SimpleSAML IDP.

|X.509 Certificate||X.509 Certificate from SimpleSAML|
|Single Logout URL [Optional]||Single Logout URL from SimpleSAML|
|Domain Mapping||Can be used to redirect specific domain user to specific IDP|

A. Restricting access to SimpleSAML with IP Blocking
You can use adaptive authentication with SimpleSAML Single Sign-On (SSO) to improve the security and functionality of Single Sign-On. You can allow a IP Address in certain range for SSO or you can deny it based your requirements and you can also challenge the user to verify his authenticity. Adaptive authentication manages the user authentication bases on different factors such as Device ID, Location, Time of Access, IP Address and many more.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with IP Blocking in following way:
|Allow||Allow user to authenticate and use services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|Challenge||Challenge users with one of the three methods mentioned below for verifying user authenticity.|
|Deny||Deny user authentications and access to services if Adaptive authentication condition is true.|
|User second Factor||The User needs to authenticate using the second factor he has opted or assigned for such as
|KBA (Knowledge-based authentication)||The System will ask user for 2 of 3 questions he has configured in his Self Service Console. Only after right answer to both questions user is allowed to proceed further.|
|OTP over Alternate Email||User will receive a OTP on the alternate email he has configured threw Self Service Console. Once user provides the correct OTP he is allowed to proceed further.|
B. Adaptive Authentication with Limiting number of devices.
Using Adaptive Authentication you can also restrict the number of devices the end user can access the Services on. You can allow end users to access services on a fixed no. of devices. The end users will be able to access services provided by us on this fixed no. of devices.You can configure Adaptive Authentication with Device Restriction in following way
C. Add Adaptive Authentication policy to SimpleSAML.
D.Notification and Alert Message.
This section handles the notifications and alerts related to Adaptive Authentication.It provides the following options :
|Challenge Completed and Device Registered||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user completes a challenge and registers a device.|
|Challenge Completed but Device Not Registered||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user completes a challenge but do not registers the device.|
|Challenge Failed||Enabling this option allows you to send an email alert when an end-user fails to complete the challenge.|
